Migraines and Vertigo - Mayo Clinic
Reader Question: I heard that Janet Jackson canceled some recent concerts because of "vestibular migraines." How are these different from regular migraines?
Poor Janet! It's not surprising that this condition interfered with her concert tour. A vestibular migraine causes something that classic migraines don't: vertigo (a.k.a. dizziness, imbalance or feeling like the room is spinning or rocking back and forth). These symptoms can sometimes make it difficult to stand up—let alone perform on stage. In addition to the vertigo and, of course, a bad headache, vestibular migraines often cause nausea, weakness in the arms and legs, and abnormal eye movements.
Vestibular migraines, like other migraines, are usually treated with prescription meds that are part of the triptan or beta-blockers family. These drugs are usually prescribed for people who have frequent and recurring symptoms.
